Meet the Fellows!

The Heartland Labor Capital Fellowship at Georgetown University (GU) kicked off its second summer with a two-day Orientation at GU on June 4th and 5th, 2018! The Fellowship is managed by a partnership between Heartland Capital Strategies (HCS) and GU’s Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor (KI).

Is manufacturing the answer to the joblessness that plagues parts of Chicago?

Chicago, like other parts of the nation, is witness to two seemingly contradictory trends: persistently high unemployment in parts of its low-income communities, and thousands of job openings that employers struggle to fill. Could manufacturing be a key to bridging the gap? In a new report, researchers from the Century Foundation and the University of Illinois at Chicago’s Great Cities Institute highlight the opportunity for manufacturers to address their talent needs by tapping into black and Latino communities experiencing high rates of joblessness.
